My idea is to start with identifying particular classes of users, in
terms of stuff they mostly do in Emacs, perhaps with a second
gradation into 2 or 3 proficiency levels.  Then making a list of
settings each class/level generally wants to change from the built-in
defaults.  When we have that, we could step back and see what to do
with the data we collected.  For some, we might decide we want to
change the defaults, end of story.  For others, we should discuss in
what form(s) to expose the relevant options to each such group of

That is just one idea, of course; other ideas for making progress are

This is already in the defaults.

This is the default.

Emacs nowadays calculates the width dynamically, depending on the
dimensions of the window.

This is not really a setting ;-)
